L Since it is by God's mercy that we are engaged in this ministry, we do not lose heart. We have renounced the shameful things that one hides; we refuse to practice cunning or to falsify God's word; but by the open statement of the truth we commend ourselves to the conscience of everyone in the sight of God. (2 Corinthians 4:1-3)
Silence is kept for confession and reflection

C LET US PROCLAIM THE GREATNESS OF GOD FOR THE LORD LOVES JUSTICE AND ESTABLISHES EQUITY AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. (Psalm 99)
